Today is Day 9 of the March Slice of Life – the daily writing challenge in March hosted at Two Writing Teachers.
I have seen several other slicers using the A-Z format for slices. I used it last year as an organizing tool for what I planned for the rest of SOL.
This time, I am using it to share more of myself.
A – Art provides me a necessary way to explore my creativity.
B – Beverley at birth (and ley), but Bev by choice, never Bevie
C – Challenges, in both art and writing, allow me to try new techniques, improve my skills, have fun and meet others
D – Dancing draws me into the music and I get lost in movement.
E – Elephants, angels, birds, heart boxes, horses – all things I have collected over the years
F – Flowers always grace our table – from cut roses to flowering plants.
G – Giving back is very important to me – helping those in need.
H – Horse racing has become a new passion since marrying my husband.
I – Inspiration comes from many sources – art, music, nature, stories, movies, people.
J –Junk collections help with my art to create mixed media pieces.
K – Keeping letters, cards, souvenirs, children’s work in several tubs.
L – Love my hubby, children, step-children, grandchildren, friends and extended family
M – Marriage late in life (at age 50) has been a blessing
N – North West Territories held my heart for three years – where I first started teachingand had my oldest son

R – Reading every day is one huge benefit of retirement
S – SHINE – my OLW (one little word) for 2016 – to push me to shine my light
T – Teaching consumed me for over 35 years
U – Using old books to create altered journals
V – Voice – my favourite show, for the music and the coach interactions
W – Writing is important and I work in many genres – from picture books to MG to romance novels
X – XOXOXOX – how I sign my cards to my love – always and forever
Y – Yarns in different colours are turned into crocheted afghans
Z – Zany? No, but I do enjoy a good joke and I love to laugh when I can – good for the soul
